Welcome, Retrievers!

We are excited to have you join our community!  Whether you are transferring in, starting mid-year, or picking up where you left off, we are thrilled to have you as part of this diverse, inclusive community.

While things on campus and the world look a little different than we are used to, we want to reassure you that you chose the right place. We want to make sure that we provide you with opportunities to connect, learn about the campus, and have some fun.  Welcome Week is one way to do that!

This is the first and only time you will have a blank slate at UMBC.  Take advantage of all that this time has to offer.  Take a moment to view this site and find ways you can connect, and be sure to check back to this page and our myUMBC group for updates and information.

Questions? Want to know more about events?  Have a question about life on campus?  Want to connect with a current student for some tips?  Email welcomeweek@umbc.edu
